SQL Log Explorer – Overview

Introduction to SQL Server Log(LDF) Files

SQL Server log files with an extension of .ldf may be defined as a transaction log containing log records generated during the logging process involved in SQL Server database.

Benefit of Log Files

A transaction is a single element for entire process. If a transaction ends in successful manner then all the modifications done to the database gets committed and permanently become a part of the database. The most effective benefit of log files is that if the transaction experiences any error and should be cancelled or rolled back then the modifications in the data will get erased.
